I immediately could see an outfit of separates

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I am in the process of reading Tim Gunn’s book, Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work. Rule 5 is GET INSPIRED IF IT KILLS YOU!
Here are a few standout quotes:
“Dullness is of your own making.”
Season 7 designer, Emilio Sosa, seemed to lack inspiration and “in my book that is a cardinal sin.”
“I like the idea of always learning. Always. If you are not learning, what makes you want to get up in the morning?”

In the past month, I have had at least three people ask me how I get inspiration for my style. That is a tough question to answer, because so many things inspire me. I might see an outfit in a movie, a book, a television show, a fashion magazine, architecture, a painting, another blog, a student, nature, music, interior décor, a mannequin….it is really difficult to list all the ways I am inspired.

cardigan to top!
Dullness is of our own making…the world is fabulous with so much inspiration around us. We just need to open our eyes! Also, it’s fun!
